    Large surface area and med-high heat transform an onion and a can of tomatoes into this delicious, fresh tasting tomato sauce in 20 minutes.

    P502. This is an all-purpose tomato sauce for pasta, pizza, sandwiches and baked dishes. Quick to make, and if you make an extra large batch, leftovers are easily frozen. 20 simple variations are given. A very useful recipe.
